Lori Loughlin’s daughter returns to social media to wish her embattled mom a happy birthday

Lori Loughlin’s daughter Isabella Giannulli returned to social media for the first time since her mother’s arrest to wish the actress a happy birthday.

Loughlin, who’s awaiting trial in the college admissions scandal, turned 55 on Sunday and her elder daughter posted a loving tribute to her “mama.” The post — her first since the scandal — included a black and white of mother and daughter together looking glam.

Loughlin’s one-time Fuller House co-star Candace Cameron Bure, who has publicly supported her friend since the scandal, was among those to like the post. She wrote, “Happy birthday to your mama!!!!!!!”

After Loughlin was arrested in March for her part in the high-profile cheating scam — she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid a combined $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California — the TV star deleted her social media accounts and her elder daughter followed suit.

Her younger daughter, social media influencer Olivia Jade, has kept hers active but hasn’t posted. (She’s reportedly taking a year off from social media.)

BACK TO SLIDE

Loughlin’s daughters were both enrolled at USC at the time her alleged involvement in the bribery scandal was exposed. They were admitted to the school as part of the rowing team, the indictment said, while neither had any involvement in the sport. They also allegedly staged photos on rowing equipment to get admitted.

The girls no longer attend USC, but the school refused to let them withdraw.

Loughlin — who lost roles on Fuller House and the Hallmark Channel after her arrest — and her husband are next expected to appear in court on Aug. 27. Each could face up to 40 years in prison.
